The British sporting calendar may not guarantee sunshine but one thing is for sure, you will be guaranteed drama; from Murray and the grass courts of Wimbledon to the roar of F1 cars around Silverstone, July is jammed packed with sporting events that are sure to grip the nation throughout July and into August.

Sportsmen and sports fans however are not generally known for their fashion sense, you need only take a quick glance at any football crowd to know this is true, so we at MFM thought we’d give you a helping hand as the British sporting calendar gears up for what will no doubt be near misses and tears for our great British sportsman.

What To Wear To Wimbledon

sporting 1

Wimbledon may already be underway but there is still plenty of time to get yourself along to SW19. Tennis and Wimbledon in particular are renowned for their quintessential British look so a light blue shirt and white denim chinos will definitely not look out of place on centre court.

The smart/casual look is very much the order of the day amongst the strawberries and cream brigade so dress appropriately. If you are a jeans and t-shirt man, stick to Henman Hill or Murray Mount or whatever name they deicde to give it this year.

What To Wear To The Grand Prix

This coming weekend will see hordes of petrol heads descend upon the Midlands to bear witness to the British F1 Grand Prix. Come rain or shine denim and leather clad men will no doubt be seen trying to sneak into the paddock to get a glimpse of their heroes.

If it’s raining, boots and leather jackets are the way to go but if the sun does appear, some Dr. Marten brogues and either a black or white t-shirt are the best way to immerse yourself in the F1 “fashion” fraternity.

What To Wear To The Ashes

From Lords to Headingly, Edgbaston to Trent Bridge, July and August will hopefully see English cricket fans celebrate if England reclaim The Ashes from the Auld enemy. For some reason football shirts always seem to make an appearance at the cricket and while we suggest you avoid the MCC / public school boy look, ditch the footy shirt for a decent polo shirt, a good pair of jeans and some on trend white trainers. Don’t forget your raincoat, this is England remember.

What To Wear To The Open

If you have ever walked into a golf club, you will soon know by the looks from the gathered throng that jeans and t-shirt are a no-no. Golf is a gent’s game – or so they say – and the attire should match.

For spectators at this years Royal Open at St. Andrews it’s all about tailored shorts, polo shirts and smart shoes – brogues or deck shoes fit the look perfectly. Strangely, for a sport that prides itself on the tact and decorum, the baseball cap is a must for players and spectators alike – ensure it’s a golf cap though and the not the New York Yankees.
